What You Don’t Get in a Budget

The Economic Times - - Personal Technology -

Some­times, cor­ners have to be cut and this means miss­ing fea­tures. Some of the typ­i­cal places where you’ll find cut cor­ners are in terms of cam­era, con­nec­tiv­ity and hard­ware. Then again, there are some things that you will never get in an en­try-level phone: a full HD dis­play, TV-out, MHL port, IR blaster (to use phone as re­mote con­trol for TV and other ap­pli­ances) and NFC (Near Field Com­mu­ni­ca­tions) to name a few.

How­ever, you can still try to get a phone that has USB host sup­port, an aut­o­fo­cus cam­era with LED flash, a front cam­era, FM Ra­dio, ex­pand­able stor­age, and 3G con­nec­tiv­ity. Don’t be afraid to con­sider a slightly older de­vice that has seen a huge price cut (the Spice Mi-525, for in­stance - see be­low). Keep your re­quire­ments in mind and com­pare dif­fer­ent phone mod­els to see if what you need is avail­able.
